I'm not saying the Stan Lee is an automatic 'win' when it comes to new concepts, but it's hard to fault the man who has fought so passionately for the nerdy pasttime of reading comics.
Verticus places players in control of a 'jump suit' falling towards the center of the Earth and dispatching 'Obliterators' on the way down. In a way the game comes off as a third-person rail-shooter and frankly the more of those we can get on to the App Store the better, especially when it looks this good.
Controlled Chaos Media have teased the gameplay via their YouTube Channel - see if it whets your whistle.
Those keen to try out the game for themselves will have to wait, but not for too long as it is scheduled for release later this year.
